In Houston, Axelrad bar has come up with drinks such as “Impeachmint,” “Bad hombre,” “Paid Protester” and “Frozen Covfefe.”
Meanwhile, some media outlets are creating games out the testimony such as the Seattle Times’ James Comey drinking game.
Comey is expected to talk about the details surrounding memos he wrote about his one-on-one meetings with President Trump.
In particular, about the FBI’s investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
